Swing Bell Sleeve Coat

Added Jan 26, 2018

I made this coat from a commercial pattern. I used wool-blends tweed, and it sparkles a little by adding a metallic yarn. I’ve had this silk scarf sitting in my closet for a long time so I used it as a lining for the sleeves. It took me 14 hours to make.

    Very nice! I like the drama-effect of the sleeves, and the lining is fab!

    Gorgeous coat and it looks terrific on you. The lining peaking through the bell sleeves is a great addition as well x
